10 Downing Street is a place few people get to visit, but you can now get a peek inside and wander the rooms of the prime minister’s base for the first time, without having to go there. Not that they will let you in, if you go : )
In a first, Google has made a new virtual tour of 10 Downing Street available that enables anyone to enjoy the rarely seen 332-year-old building that has been home to British prime ministers since 1735.
To fully enjoy the 10 Downing Street virtual reality features, all you have to do is install the Arts & Culture app on your phone.
The app works on both iOS and Android devices. Alternatively you you can use your desktop computer to explore the rooms from your web browser.
The British Museum was also recently added to Street View, enabling users to journey through more than 3,000 years of ancient Egyptian sculpture, including the Rosetta Stone and colossal statues of pharaohs at the British Museum.
The indoor Street View footage took fifteen months to film as it had to be done out of normal visiting hours.
You can tour the ancient Egypt gallery from the comfort of your home on Google Street View by clicking here. The entire collection of the museum can also be seen here.
